You’ve Got Dung! Amazon Is Now Delivering Cow Pies In India

NPR – January 6, 2016

I (author Deepak Singh)learned that cow dung cakes can now be ordered on the Indian Amazon website. Out of curiosity, I ordered 6 pieces. It cost me 236 rupees, about $4. I called the local office of Amazon and spoke to Jaideep, who was very courteous and happy to answer my questions. He said, “Sir, this is a new product that Amazon is selling and they are getting a lot of orders from folks in urban areas where it is not so easy to find cow dung cakes.” When I asked him what people wanted it for, he said, “They use it for religious purposes only.”

There’s no news here, it’s sad to say,
There’s crap in my mailbox every day.
